The purpose

Oral antiviral drugs which can be given to patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B include Lamivudine, Clevudine, Adefovir, Telbivudine, Entecavir and Tenofovir. 2009 American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) Treatment Guidelines and 2009 European association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) Treatment Guidelines recommend the administration of Entecavir or Tenofovir with high potency and low resistance. Lamivudine has low antiviral potency and high incidence of mutation in long-term administration compared to Entecavir or Tenofovir. Clevudine causes the elevated creatinine kinase (CK), side effects including myositis/myopathy and much mutation in the long-term administration. Globe study demonstrated Telbivudine had more excellent antiviral potency than Lamivudine, which was also comparable to or higher than Entecavir or Tenofovir. Nevertheless, the choice of treatment drugs can be limited due to the mutation rate of 25% for 2 years. However, the analysis of Globe study results showed that 2-year treatment progress was very good in patient who showed virologic response at 24 weeks after the initiation of treatment and that high antiviral potency and low mutation rate were observed when the Telbivudine roadmap strategy (in the event that virologic response is shown at 24 weeks, telbivudine monotherapy is maintained and in the event that virologic response is not shown, tenofovir add-on therapy is done) recently implemented and announced in 2011 Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL) was applied. However, the study was single arm study, which restricted the comparison between Entecavir and Tenofovir monotherapy groups. Therefore, this study intends to compare the anti-viral effect and mutation rate between Entecavir 0.5mg monotherapy group and Telbivudine roadmap strategy group in patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B through a randomized study.
